      I wish I still had my old kobalt swivel head ratchet. The newer kobalts and the craftsmans just aren't the same, too bulky.

    I broke 4 of those in a month and gay-on banned me from getting replacements.
    Now every time I see one of their trucks it completely coincidentally gets multiple flat tires.

      Anon, stop putting cheater bars on 3/8" and 1/4" ratchets..

        You don't need a cheater bar to break those things, they're weak at that pivot pin. I broke 2 taking out old spark plugs.

    Regular flex head is better. Swivel heads are too bulky in some spots.

        Because I’m not double fisting ratchets when I got an impact in my hand anyway

        Stubby boi,

        The Gearwrench 84T ratchets are the best combination of value and strength and stuff of any I’ve tried.

    No because the handle is hard to fit a cheater over

      The soft grip handles are nice if you’re working around painted stuff. Or if you need to work in freezing cold. I don’t really go out of my way to get em though, they get torn up when you need to whack the handle with a hammer.

      As far as I can figure, it's either to give you twice as many opportunities to fit the socket over the hex head if you have little clearance or so that it also works for square nuts.

        I got one from Walmart (Hart brand) and it's a phenomenal piece of shit. It's sturdy-ish when fully extended and it does come in handy, but the locking mechanism is trash and would always jam up. It comes with a lifetime warranty which is why I decided to take a gamble on it in the first place, but I was too lazy to file a warranty claim. I guess they got me. I put some chassis grease on it and it works fine now. Harbor freight can't be too much better quality. If it's dirt cheap go for it, otherwise beware.

      Is that shit actually robust when extended? I've mulled over getting one in 3/8ths numerous times so I don't have to reach for a cheater or grab a longer ratchet

        I can break lug nuts loose with it and my oil drain plug. Not sure about anything else more heavy duty though

    The on/off indicator is worth it alone

    The 1/4” swivel head ratchet is a must have for everyone. Ratcheting nut driver mode is sort of a game changer.

      That’s the best case for the fatter comfort grip handles. The plain chrome handles on the 1/4” are more awkward to spin in a straight line.

      Most regular flex heads will go just over 90deg though and you can twist em fast almost like one of those old school electician’s spinner screwdrivers with the bent shaft.

      The on/off indicator is worth it alone

      On the roto heads? Those are the worst. You almost always need 2 hands while a regular ratchet just requires a flick of the thumb.
